Actually, it didn't get quite as cold as -24 here, more like a balmy -17, but cold is cold.
Sure pretty when the sun comes out on all the snow covered trees, tho'.
Snow Monster? No clue. Just a weird blob of snow out in the front yard.
Looking out the driveway. That pile of snow you can see just below center is probably about 3' tall and what's left by the plow. Extends back 2-4' in width, too. All this translates to the roads getting ever narrower as winter progresses.
